  • 1 tablespoon crème fraîche
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard or wholegrain mustard

  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar or white balsamic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 spring onions, chopped
  • 10cm piece of cucumber
  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 200g pack green beans

  1. Mix the cream sauce ingredients together in a bowl and set aside until needed.
  2. Mix together the wine vinegar, olive oil, sugar and salt and pepper in another bowl. Add the spring onions. Cut the cucumber in half lengthways and scoop out the seed part. Cut into small chunks and add to the bowl.
  3. Put 2 pans of water on to boil. Once boiling, add the potatoes to one and cook for 10–12 minutes until they are tender. Add the beans to the other and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. When they are 5 minutes off cooked, place 1⁄2 mug of water in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Turn down to simmer. Add the salmon fillets, season with salt and pepper, cover with a lid and simmer for 5 minutes. Gently open up the fish with a fork to check that they are cooked in the middle.
